Mule volleyball action starts tonight


September 11, 2014

Play begins for the Wahkiakum Mule volleyball team tonight (Thursday) with a non-league match at home against South Bend. The team has been preparing the last few weeks and things are starting to come together.

Coach Kayli Hurley is focused on her team and hasn’t wasted any time or energy worrying about the details of their opposition this season. The big picture is more than enough.

“In our Central 2 B league,” Hurley said, “there isn’t anyone you can look past.

“Tori Wegdahl, Kaylee Bryant, Morgan Elliott and Baylee Olsen are my strong returning core. The four seniors bring a lot of experience, power and smarts to the team."

On Tuesday, the team was running through plays. The team has a number of heavy hitters, and so they’ve had to spend more time focusing on receiving, a skill one could spend a lifetime mastering.

It’s still early and Hurley is optimistic.

“We’re working out the kinks,” Hurley said, “but they are mentally prepared.”

Thursday’s matches begin with junior varsity play at 5:45 p.m. in the Wahkiakum High School gym. The varsity follows at 7 p.m.
